Mans best friend


On a cold falls morning out hunting waterfowl in the blind, a shot is fired and a goose falls from the sky.  Without hesitation, the black lab erupts from the blind to make the retrieval.  As the dog delivers the bird back to the hunter, there is a sense of accomplishment in the labs eyes.  This is the most rewarding feeling from the dogs owner on a hunt.  Nothing beats hunting with your best friend!

Nesting season

This has been a really good nesting season and it is starting to show.  We have been seeing several broods of pheasants on the roads and in hay fields recently.  Some of the chicks are already almost adult size.  The official reports don't come out until late summer, but signs are showing its going to be an increase crop of birds!

The big 10 point buck harvested at the ranch

Paul's buck harvested at Rolling Plains Adventures during the 2017 hunting season was aged at 7.5 years old and scored around 165".  We believe this buck to be the giant 10 we watched during 2014 through 2016.  This buck was the dominant buck when it was harvested, but not the biggest.  There were already younger, bigger bucks trying to push him out of the way during the rut but he still held his own.   In this bucks prime, we figured him to be in the 180's.  This buck lived to haunt many hunters that came to the ranch, but everyone was excited to see him finally up close.  The buck is another great trophy Paul will add to his collection of giants from the ranch.

2018 Pheasant Hunting Season Forcast

The North Dakota Pheasant and Grouse population is looking great for the 2018 season.  So far, North Dakota has received good rains throughout May and June to produce enough cover and insects for the chicks to survive off of.  In 2017, we had minimal rainfall which didn't allow for insects to thrive. therefore not allowing good hatches.  Now moving forward into 2018, things have spun a 180 and numbers should increase a good amount.  Early studies are pointing at a 50% increase in production.
This is great news for Hunting in North Dakota this fall.  ND Game and Fish reports will not officially come out until mid to late summer, so check back for in the field updates from your team at Rolling Plains Adventures.

2018 Waterfowl forcast

Things are looking great for the 2018 duck and goose hunting season.  North Dakota has received good rainfalls this spring, plus the added snow melt off, which has created an abundance of habitat for nesting.  All this extra habitat will allow more cover to avoid predators, higher success in bird numbers, and added hunting acres for this fall. 
Our team at Rolling Plains Adventures is busy working with this new habitat by building new blinds, adding new dams, and creating better hunting areas. This is great news for the 2018 hunting season.  This fall can't get here soon enough!!!
